Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Assigned to photograph the Beatles in 1964, the Scottish-born Benson followed them to New York and never went home. Benson photographs people, and through great talent, abundant patience, and lucky timing he delivers telling portraits of celebrities, politicians, athletes, artists, and unknowns. These images give uncanny insight into Benson's subjects and what they really care about, succeeding whether his subjects pose, primp, relax, or collapse in fatigue. When Caroline Kennedy was married, Jackie Onassis hired Benson to photograph the wedding. When the reborn Vanity Fair was teetering, its editors hired Benson to photograph the Reagans, and the magazine was energized. When People magazine needs covers, it hires Benson, who has shot 100 of its best. In this excellent book, Benson selects images representing 50 years of work (probably his favorite people) and adds his recollection of the setup for each shot some joyous, some tragic. Recommended.
